    Do you really need to compile python2.6? RHEL has packages for
    python, and it's better to use pre-compiled packages rather than
    compile them yourself. Also, 2.6 is an old version that you should
    not be using 99% of the time.

    I concur, but FYI the version of Python with RHEL5 is 2.4. Still, OP
    should stick with that unless there is a pressing reason.

    Hence, the 2.6 install.

    First, sorry for my omission to trim.

    Second, the reason for recommending that OP stick to the Red Hat provided
    version (unless there is a pressing reason) is the question of the
    already-paid-for Red Hat support.

    And for that matter, if OP is forced to a later Python 2 version than
    2.4, why not 2.7.3?

    Generally, when you compile from source the binaries will install to
    /usr/local/bin and not be in conflict with RH's install version.

    Package dependencies. If the OP intends to install a package that
    doesn't support other than 2.6, you install 2.6.

    It would be a pretty poor third party package which specified Python 2.6
    exactly, rather than (say) "Python 2.6 or later, but not Python 3"

    It doesn't need to be a poorly supported third party package to require
    a non-current version of python -- just something as simple as an up and
    running application. Suppose you're migrating an application to new
    hardware. To make it interesting, assume it's a 10 year old zope
    application. It's likely that to minimize effort you'll gather
    (assuming you didn't save your sources - you do install from source,
    right?) and install the versions prescribed.

    Of course, if you're comfortable upgrading to the latest release then
    then, by all means, do so. For me, python is used for for dozens of
    rather significant one-offs that I prefer not to upgrade. Why mess with
    a working app.

    After a thread of clueless replies, it's clear that nobody
    responding actually read the build log. Here's the problem:

    Failed to find the necessary bits to build these modules:
    bsddb185
    dl
    imageop
    sunaudiodev

    What's wrong is that the Python 2.6 build script is looking for
    some antiquated packages that aren't in a current RHEL. Those
    need to be turned off.

    This is a known problem (see
    http://pythonstarter.blogspot.com/2010/08/bsddb185-sunaudiodev-python-26-ubuntu.html)
    but, unfortunately, the site with the patch for it
    (http://www.lysium.de/sw/python2.6-disable-old-modules.patch)
    is no longer in existence.

    But someone archived it on Google Code, at

    http://code.google.com/p/google-ear...ty/python/python2.6-disable-old-modules.patch

    so if you apply that patch to the setup.py file for Python 2.6, that
    ought to help.

    You might be better off building Python 2.7, but you asked about 2.6.

    There are a lot of clueless statements on websites around the world.
    I'll just quote the one significant comment on the lysium.de page:

    """
    There's actually no need to apply your patch to setup.py. Python complains
    about not being able to build those modules, but it will still build and
    install just fine without them.
    #6 Alexander Fairley on 2009-01-19 01:43
    """

    which is unfortunately burried under an avalanche of "satisfied customer"
    replies. Alexander, you're my hero ;)

    That patch prevents setup.py from adding a few names of rarely
    needed/available modules to the list of missing modules. That's snakeoil.

    OP: You can safely ignore the error message, the patch has no real-world
    effect.

    The very first reply, Emile's, pointed out that these were optional
    modules, and that python did, in fact build successfully.

    They don't need to be turned off. They can either be ignored (because
    they aren't needed, and did not cause the build to fail), or the
    development libraries for those pieces can be installed and python
    recompiled.

    The rest of the thread has been commenting on the OP's choice of
    python version and operating system. That's not exactly on topic, but
    the original question was answered in the very first response.
